Feature Article Plastic Surgery Secrets Revealed


Samaritan Plastic, Reconstructive & Hand Surgery divulges what happens behind closed doors.

Pop culture and “real” housewives have given plastic surgery a bad name, but the truth is plastic surgeons are highly-skilled surgeons who specialize in operating on some of the most delicate and complex areas of the body, incorporating techniques from general, orthopedic and vascular surgeons. In fact, you might not even know everything a plastic surgeon can do for you.

The surgical portion of a plastic surgeon’s practice can be utilized after a major medical event to help patients regain their physical appearance. The clinic works closely with breast cancer, weight loss surgery and many other types of patients, offering several types of reconstruction. Richard Havard, MD, and Kevin Day, MD, both provide the full range of cosmetic surgical procedures that are more well-known. From facelifts, eyelifts, rhinoplasty (nose job), liposuction to abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), body contouring and more, Samaritan Plastic, Reconstructive & Hand Surgery is able to meet the needs of a variety of patients right here in the mid-Willamette Valley.

“The most common type of procedure we do is a tummy tuck,” said Day, “But patients have choices. We try to listen to each one to help them determine the best fit for their lifestyle.”

The clinic also offers non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX® and cosmetic line and wrinkle fillers. Two types of lasers provide a variety of treatments, from skin tightening, hair removal and treating stretch marks, to vascular skin concerns such as rosacea and varicose veins.

The practice also staffs a clinical aesthetician to provide professional skin care and cosmetic services. Clinical grade skincare products, chemical peels, facials, microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are available for those looking to enhance the appearance of their skin. A complimentary skin evaluation is provided to help patients understand which options would best suit their skin needs and appearance goals.

“We are a full-service clinic for people who want to feel better about the way they look,” said Havard of the clinic’s offerings. “Whether you’ve been through something as traumatizing as breast cancer or as life-changing as significant weight loss, or just want to change something about yourself, plastic surgery can help people regain some confidence and enter a new phase of life.”
